    Isaac Newton's Theory

    Using empirical equations like this is a common trick in science; find a mathematical function that fits what you’ve observed, then use that as a clue to what’s happening behind your observations. Planck had taken this second step, and was looking for a theoretical derivation of what became Planck’s Law. This gave him a more fundamental understanding of the process of radiation. It is ironic, then, that Planck needed to quantise light to get his derivation to work. He had used Boltzmann’s equation to better understand the process but this understanding was that light came in quanta. Planck very definitely did not believe that light actually came in quanta. He considered it just a mathematical trick to make his equation work. Having worked with classical physics all his life, he was used to looking on light as a wave and using wave-based equations to accurately predict its behaviour. His ‘imaginary’ discrete energy packets had no place in this structure. Planck’s equation was not, at first, very popular. The rest of the physics community had the same problems with it as he did, the fact that he had to use a mathemagical trick to get…

    previous theories of electrodynamics such as that of Morley and Miller in 1904; “The decisive step, however, was taken in the paper by Einstein in 1905 in which he established … a change in the very foundations of physics; an unexpected and very radical change that required all the courage of a young and revolutionary genius.” Einstein as a German Jew very quickly became the most recognized and important scientist since Newton, and furthered the development of other fundamental revolutions in…

    Albert Einstein, considered one of the sharpest minds in history, died unfulfilled. All of his life since he was a kid, he had been in awe from the natural phenomena of the world. Taken over by passion, Einstein put his whole focus on science. Even as a brilliant child, teachers thought he would never amount to anything, because of his lack of interest in anything other than sciences and math. Einstein and I share the same hyperfocus towards our passions that blindly leads us away from other…

    Otto Hahn was born in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1879. Hahn quickly took an interest in chemistry in his early years. By 1897 at age 18, Hahn was attending the University of Marburg studying chemistry. After taking his doctorate exam at only age 22 in 1901 and then working as an assistant at the University of Marburg, Hahn moved on from organic chemistry into the field of studying radiochemistry and radioactivity in London with Sir William Ramsay, the British chemist most known for discovering the…

    not what you were born with. Contrary to the norm belief in talent, deliberate practice is actually a highly structured level of exercise in which there is a specific goal and plan on how to get to the desired level of achievement. It requires effort and time. Many fields require vigorous training for at least several years in order to master. Ericsson’s studies and experiments have only further explained and proved that deliberate practice is the way to success, and that no amount of “talent”…

    they’re real or fictional. I play numerous of video games, listen to almost every genre of music, and read several different types of books, so I change my mind all the time. As of recently, one of my favorite figures has been Max from a game called Life is Strange. The game itself is beautifully designed graphically and plotline wise, and it really makes you think. To sum it up, the plot is that Max is a senior at an art school, where she’s living in the dorms with her fellow students.The game…
